Come sing, dance, or meditate your way to joy!
Throughout history, sages, philosophers, and poets have explored the experience of joy. Through her own praxis: the study of joy (St. Augustine; Archbishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama; Adrienne Maree Brown) and the creation of her own Positivity Pod and their co-created “Embracing Joy in Challenging Times” workshops, Dr. Romney has conceptualized joy as a vital and emergent strategy for individual and collective well-being.
Building on the core wisdom of spiritual sages and the scientific knowledge gleaned from positive psychology, Dr. Romney’s work helps you to access joy by: improving self-care practices, practicing a growth mindset, building life-vitalizing connections, and managing stress.
If you are committed to maximizing the joy in your one precious life, contact Dr. Pat Romney today.
“Thank you, Pat for bringing us together for the inaugural Joy Pod. I looked forward to every Friday at 2pm. I considered our time together pure joy!"
“I love how you structured the sessions – with a check-in, a meditation, some content, pair share, and coming back together. It felt like time well-spent every week. I learned about joy, AND I got to experience joy through the connections I made."
Molly Keehn, Ed.D., CoJourn International
How do we understand the thinking and behavior of people from other cultures? Why do some people easily embrace while others stand at a distance and nod? What about organizational cultures and how they differ?
Like intellectual intelligence and emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence is an important component of interpersonal relations. Cultural intelligence is, in addition, an essential component of intergroup relations.
While so much important work is going on with anti-racism and white supremacy, many people do not understand the differences between individuals and systems. Between these two poles lies the land of interpersonal, group, and intergroup relationships. And all of those domains have culture.
If you are committed to taking your cultural intelligence to the next level, contact Dr. Pat Romney today.
“Pat is exceptional. She took the time to understand our organization, mission, and culture. She didn't offer up cookie cutter solutions and instead helped us address concerns about diversity, inclusion, and equity in a way that stayed true to our mission. And she helped me to become a much stronger and more empathetic leader.”
Ted Nordhaus, Founder and Executive Director, The Breakthrough
As our society becomes more diverse and organizations commit to anti-oppressive and culturally competent practices, some individuals may require support or education to engage in practices that are equitable and respectful.
Dr. Romney offers corrective and transformational coaching for faculty and staff. This coaching is a tool that organizations can use to help support and redirect those who are in need of education in the practice of equity and inclusion.
We live in an increasingly divided world, where an emphasis on “me,” “mine,” “I” has replaced the connections and mutuality suggested by the terms “us,” “we,” “ours.”
Dialogues and facilitated conversations offer the opportunity to develop the intellectual aptitude, the experience of engagement with others, and the affective orientation needed to foster the building of a better more inclusive world.
Whether to build a sense of unity in a group or to bridge gaps that have arisen from conflict or lack of understanding, Dr. Romney will work with you and your group or organization to structure a process that builds connection and increases trust.
Dr. Romney has done this work with small teams, arts organizations, human services companies, academic departments, and boards of directors.
“Thanks again for your leadership through this process. The thoughtful way that you approached the specific needs of our Board made all the difference. The sessions changed the way our Board interacts internally, and how people think about the issues we face.”
Nancy Street, Chilmark Town Council
“Thank you, Pat, for your wonderful thought capital and for being the right person at the right time to give our team good pause, considerations and dialogue.”
